Hyundai is all set to cut the ribbons as it goes on launching the all-new four-wheeler electric Ioniq 5 which will hopefully debut next year in the Auto Expo event. In lieu of the launch, the company is thinking one square ahead as it goes on launching its worldwide platform for battery electric vehicles called E-GMP(Electric Global Modular Platform) for Indian customers. The Ioniq 5 model will be based completely on E-GMP.
What is the new E-GMP model?
According to Hyundai, its E-GMP platform consists of a vehicle’s chassis, which is divided into many components including the battery, motor, and power electric system. The platform makes use of a cutting-edge battery pack that is said to give a long range. Additionally, the high-voltage battery can power numerous electrical equipment thanks to the bi-directional charging connector. The platform’s integrated charging control unit (ICCU), which is utilized to charge both the high-voltage battery and the auxiliary battery, is another noteworthy feature. Hyundai also emphasized that this new platform can support a variety of vehicle kinds. And thanks to creative interior packaging, vehicles built on this platform will have a level floor, a thin cockpit, and a flexible yet roomy cabin.
What did the CEO say?
The company affirms to the audience that they have been working for the smart revolution of automobiles in India for two decades now and counting. According to Hyundai, it has consistently worked to bring customers in India new mobility options. In a statement made by Hyundai Motor India, MD & CEO Unsoo Kim said, “As we continue to challenge possibilities and dynamics of mobility, our pursuit of innovation is perfectly reflected in the Electric Global Modular Platform – E-GMP.

The business has made its E-GMP dedicated BEV platform for upcoming electric vehicles available to the public and stated that it hopes to “pioneer” the development of EVs with this new dedicated platform. “Conceptualized and engineered to pivot the future transformation of Electric Mobility, E-GMP will usher in a new league of Electric Vehicles for the smart new-age customers in India,” added Kim.
